LATHAM-FROM THEIR ACCOUNT by Matt Unruh
Latham advises never to give out any kind of bank account information over the phone or through text messages. She says if someone does give out their account information, they should contact their bank immediately so their debit card can be de-activated and their account can be closed to protect their money. Latham says law enforcement have been notified about the scam circulating the Great Bend area. She says the scam phone calls and text messages have reportedly been from a 678 area code, which is based in Georgia.
